're governor of ohio. michigan has had one of the biggest drops in unemployment. when obama took office, michigan was a mess because of the auto industry. they've had a huge drop of unemployment. even though they a little bit higher now than michigan. and i was struck that governor kasich suggested that everybody was for the auto rescue. no, they weren't. most republicans, with the exception by the way of president george w. bush who let it happen with actions he took, were against the auto rescue. so i don't understand, well i do understand, but people just don't want to take responsibility for where they stood on that issue. >> this was a question, carly about the auto bailout b. what role government direct government money would play in restructuring these companies. >> that's right. and who stands first in line to be repaid? is it the unions? or is it debtors and creditors? that was the fundamental question. and the truth is, it is disingenuous and factually inaccurate to say that republicans weren't for the rescue of the auto industry. the question was how. and what. and who would
including some along the garden state parkway. yesterday president obama joined governor chris christie on the ground in atlantic city for an up-close look at the destruction where the storm came ashore. they also saw the damage by air. boarding the president's marine one helicopter for aerial views of the hardest-ity communities. the governor thanked the president for pledging quick federal relief to the region. it's something president obama insists will not be delayed. >> what i can promise you is that the federal government will be working as closely as possible with the state and local officials, and we will not quit until this is done. we are not going to tolerate red tape. we're not going to tolerate bureaucracy. and i've instituted a 15-minute rule essentially on my team, you return everybody's phone calls in 15 minutes. whether it's the mayors, the governors, county officials. if they need something, we figure out a way to say yes. >> and the president of the united states and i have now had six conversations since sunday. that shows to me a level of caring and concern and inte
thought that it would be obama, by the way, and not governor romney spending time with christie in the final week of the election? that will be the picture of the day, the president and christie. mitt romney is back campaigning in florida today with three rallies scheduled in tampa. coral gables and jacksonville where he'll be joined by former governor jeb bush. with the president in new jersey, romney's returned to the trail is tricky. romney suspended campaigning tuesday. he did hold what the campaign billed as a relief event but it was in the battleground state of ohio where the governor encouraged donations to the red cross. >> i've had the chaps to speak with some of the governors in the affected areas and they've talked about a lot of people having hard times, and i appreciate the fact that people right here in dayton got up this morning. some went to the dproeshry store, i see, and purchased some things that these families will need. >> given how close this election it, it won't be surprising if the losing side ends up blaming sandy. whether that's fair or not you can arg
that president obama will be holding ab11:45 a.m. eastern call with mayors and governors affected by sandy. we'll check in with nbc's chuck todd coming up from washington and you can also track the storm by checking out weather.com. you'll get up-to-date information on efforts to help the victims as well and the weather channel shows will be streaming live on weather.com. we're back with much more right after this. i'd like to thank eating right, whole grain, multigrain cheerios! mom, are those my jeans? [ female announcer ] people who choose more whole grain tend to weigh less than those who don't. multigrain cheerios because they provide solutions for all situations. how? they work with vmware to provide virtualization and cloud solutions tailored to a company's unique i.t. needs. so, you're my caddy. what solution would you provide for me now? well, you're 30 yards away from the green. you've got a bunker to the left of you and a bunker to the right of you. and remember, this is client golf. >>> welcome back, everybody. one of mitt romney's strongest supporters has nothing, but praise for p
, that is in part a disadvantage for president obama, but it's too hard to say right now. >> hogan, governor romney is continuing that cam taken to go forward in states not impacted by hurricane sandy. it was really interesting, joe scarborough and his observations this morning he made on "morning joe." take a listen. >> this was mitt romney's best weekend, and it stops. the momentum stops. you don't know how it freezes, but it's a new dynamic into the race and changes everything with with a week to go. >> let's talk about this. not only could this stall romney's momentum, but it also brings up something that mitt romney was forceful about during the primary debates. he sad voe indicated shutting down team na and letting states handle disaster relief. watching what's taking place with sandy, know we have 12 different states that declared states of emergency and also the district, washington, d.c., does this pose a problem for mitt romney if he gets questioned on his belief about fema and tries to go to some places to look presidential post-sandy, is that an issue for him? >> that's a great point, t
. >> reporter: launching a frantic five-day battleground tour, mr. obama hammered his opponent as a candidate who can't be trusted. >> governor romney has been using all his talents as a salesman to dress up all these same policies that failed our country so badly. >> reporter: charging into virginia, mitt romney, who Ñi softened his attack during the wake of superstorm sandy, had more to say. he re-focused squarely on his rival >> if president obama is reelected, you will see high levels of unemployment continue and stalled wage growth, if any at all. >> reporter: and mr. romney mocked mr. obama for this proposal he outlined earlier. >> i said i want to consolidate the government agencies, we should have one secretary of business, instead of nine different departments. >> we don't need the secretary of business to understand business. we need a president who understands business. and i do. >> reporter: this afternoon in richmond, mr. romney called on supporters to give to the red cross but was interrupted by protesters. >> that is what caused this monster storm. >> reporter: at the center o
and left that new jersey governor chris christie has said favorable things about the obama administration's efforts in those early days after hurricane sandy. republicans worried that christie saying anything favorable about obama is politically disloyal need to remember that a governor's first responsibility is to his or her state and its people. those in the media looking to determine political winners and losers in this situation should stop. we republicans ought to be proud of public officials who, like christie, are faithful to the job they're elected to do. thank you, haley barbour. thank you, alex, for picking that. >> the governor of mississippi during katrina. >> he would know. and it all stops, right, in time of crisis? >> almost two minds of that. >> why are you of two minds about that? >> on the one hand, haley barbour did go through the crucible of katrina and bonded with his state and recognized the importance of federal and state cooperation. on the other hand, the notion that haley barbour's big giant brand not having to think about politics, i'm a little skeptical of. >>
on that in just a couple of minutes. >> all right ahead, sandy has both president obama and governor romney standing down on the politics with the presidential race exactly one week away. they have canceled their public events today and friday's all-important jobs report might be delayed. we'll talk about the storm's impact on the race and the economy with chuck todd and cnbc's jim cramer just ahead. >> a quick note for you. we're sad to say that due to sandy we will not be having our halloween celebration on the plaza tomorrow, so if you were planning to join us out here in costume, we want you to stay home, stay safe. we will get that done at some other point. things are more important. >> they are indeed. you'll have to put the ponte hose away for another year. get the latest on the storm, the record flooding we've seen in lower manhattan. let's get to natalie morales in battery park city in the southern tip of mat hannan. natalie, good morning to you again. >> reporter: good morning to you, savannah, once again. we're fully now beginning to realize the devastation of sandy. as you have
. the united states pledging quick relief for the millions of victims of the hurricanes. today president obama is scheduling to arrive in atlantic city to survey the damage alongside governor chris christie. this morning the associated press reports the storm killed at least 50 people. there are more than 8.2 million households still without power across 17 states. and many of the outages could last beyond election day. between damage to property and the economy, the total impact expected to reach a staggering $50 billion. the damage is perhaps nowhere worse than the coastline of new jersey where sandy came ashore laying waste to an amusement park and historic boardwalk at seaside heights. as for the airports, jfk, newark, they're expected to resume limited service this morning. the same cannot be said for laguardia. jetblue posted these photos of the runways submerged. more than 18,000 flights have already been canceled as a result of sandy. and police had to take to the air to save victims from rooftops in staten island after floodwaters surrounded their homes. they were loaded one by one in
a lot. i know a lot of republicans had hoped governor romney wouldn't have to be spending time in florida or virginia at this point. he could be focusing more on ohio and the pickup states. president obama, that map is a little bit misleading. where he's really spending all of his time in the last three days is in wisconsin, in iowa, and in ohio. >> can he win with wisconsin, iowa, virginia, and florida? >> clearly, he will win with all those. he could win without some of those things as long as he holds onto wisconsin and iowa he could lose a bunch of other states. that's his firewall. he's spending a bunch of time in the firewall states like nevada and wisconsin and iowa. that's the way that he holds on even if romney somehow runs the table in florida, virginia, and ohio. if he can hold those other states, he can still win. >> chuck, you go along with that? >> i do. >> we need virginia and florida? >> i have been trying -- the sunday romney schedule had been in the dark. they had set it up. here is the sunday schedule. we just got it. iowa, ohio, pennsylvania, and virginia. n
there on all the talk shows really praising barack obama and how cooperative he's been with governor christie in new jersey. if you look at it from christ christie's perspective, that's what he should be doing. he's a governor who's going to need as much assistance and help in the aftermath of the storm as anyone. befriending the president, praising the president, bringing the president into his state and traveling the state, that's what you do when you're a governor. >> by the way, jim -- by the way, jim, not being cynical, i think you were just about to get to it, the politics of it, he's running next year in the bluest of blue states. and it does not hurt. does not hurt. being tied together with president obama. >> he's just complimenting him. you guys are all making it sound like they're going out and having a beer and, like, becoming best friends. he complimented his leadership. is that against the law? >> it's rather odd. >> does that make it more? is it odd in this climate, the climate's wrong. >> it was effusive. >> i'm more interested in mayor bloomberg and what's going on there. >>
clean, or your money back. . >>> hurricane sand chip has president obama and governor romney scrambling to rearrange their campaign plans with the election just eight days away now. both men altering their schedules and cancelling events. chuck todd is chief white house correspondent. chuck, good morning to you. >> the calendar tell us there's eight days left before the election but there are not many campaign days. two campaign days and possibly three are gone. president obama woke up this morning in orlando thought he was going to do an event. they cancelled his appearance there. he's now back at the white house. he's already lopped off his entire tuesday schedule. mitt romney on the other hand is trying to find this balance. the fact of the matter is we know this is the october surprise, is this storm. the campaign has frozen in place as far as all the polls are concerned. the question now though who benefits from this race freezing? president obama tried to stay ahead of sandy arriving in orlando late sunday 12 hours ahead of schedule. mitt romney cancelled his weekend events in vir
does it mean for early voting? governor romney's recent momentum and president obama's chance to look presidential in this final week. >>> one state already feeling the direct effect of the storm is right here just outside of us in virginia today. we're breaking down the recent success for democrats in the old dominion and what are the president's chances to do it again? good morning from a very rainy washington. it's monday, october 29th, 2012. this is "the daily rundown." i'm chuck todd. let's get right to my first reads of the morning. and it's this. a massive category 1 storm, but it's a large one. and it's bearing down on the east coast just eight days before the election. nearly 60 million people are in hurricane sandy's path one way or the other. and it stretches more than 800 miles from north carolina to maine. and as sandy barrels towards the east coast, it is already bringing heavy rainfall and sustained winds up to 85 miles an hour. now, it's not just wind and rain. as much as three feet of snow is forecast in parts of west virginia. officials estimate repairing the damage
clinton flying solo in florida. >> i was supposed to be the warmup man for president obama today. but that storm on the east coast had other ideas. >> governor romney canceled his schedule tonight but today he was still campaigning out of the storm's path in ohio. >> on the eastern coast of our nation, a lot of people are enduring some very difficult times. and our hearts and our prayers go to them. >> good day. i'm andrea mitchell live in washington. and we are in a special edition today, hurricane sandy growing stronger, reaching what could be historic strength as it heads directly for the northeast. we've got all of our reporters standing by throughout the danger zones with full reports but first, our meteorologist bill karins, live in lower manhattan, bracing for the storm surge tonight. bill, you're down there near battery city and obviously you're looking at tide coming in i guess around 8:30 tonight, is the really first test of just how bad this is going to be? >> yeah. this is slightly scary since this is what it looks like at the low tide, you know. we hit that this morn
will have more on that in a couple of minutes. >>> also ahead, sandy, of course, has both president obama and governor romney standing down with the politics. the presidential race still one week away. both candidates have canceled their public campaign events today, and friday's all-important jobs report could be delayed. we're going to talk about the storm's impact on the race and the economy with chuck todd and cnbc's jim cramer. >>> let us start, though, with the record flooding we've seen down in lower manhattan. natalie morales is down in battery park city. natalie, good morning to you. >> reporter: and good morning to you, matt. we are fortunate that those waters have receded down here in the lower manhattan area, but obviously flooding is an ongoing concern. just to bring you up-to-date right now, nbc news has confirmed 18 deaths have now been blamed on sandy. the situation still not safe, according to officials. as you see, bands of rain and wind still whipping us around, so there's still many areas that are waterlogged right now. flooding, the ongoing concern in coastal, new jer
that ohio tightened to the closest that it was. i've even gotten the obama campaign to admit that. >> we want to go to hartford, connecticut, now we have standing by the democratic governor, governor danell malloy. governor malloy, connecticut's certainly going to be hit hard. is your state ready? >> well, i think we're ready. if preparation is warning people, evacuating people and having assets in place for recovery, we're ready. we're better prepared for this storm than we've ever been prepared in our history. but we're not exactly sure what's going to be thrown at us, although our worst-case scenario right now is on script. and that is that this afternoon's tide will be as bad as the perfect storm '92/irene of last year. and that tonight's tide, along with the entirety of long island sound on our side, could be catastrophic. that's what we're planning for. we hope it's avoided somehow and some way, but if you look at all the surge maps, it's connecticut that will be most adversely impacted. >> yeah. and you know what? i covered connecticut for quite some time many years ago. and there
have a grip on who mitt romney is? really? the moderate pro choice governor from massachusetts, the guy who gave us the model for obama care or does he hang closely with hawks, joins with religious right. is he dr. jekyll or mr. hyde, or is he both or neither? jack kennedy once said he felt sorry for his rival richard nixon because he doesn't know who he is and each stop he has to decide which nixon he is at the moment. worse case? do you think this guy mr. romney will suddenly have the force of will to betray the right? have you seen a single case when romney's broken free from the mob that's brought him this far, a single sister soldier when he says of the trumps, sununus, neocons, no, this time you ask
